Hiro should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
They were running different programs, Toyota may have lifted on straights, and Porsche, especially Lotterar, had the stable long-run pace, so it will be close fight (Someone posted a graph).

As much as the world may change, there are some things that stay the same...

I think the positive thing (besides setting the 4 best times) is that this is still a young car. If it can get even better with more testing and time, they will be have a really strong package. And Lapierre and Davidson both did two 1:30's a piece, that was nice to see. Kunimoto was setting some decent times considering it was his first time driving Monza.

According to Autosport web,
Only #9 will use LDF spec aero at Spa round in Toyota.

So Toyota are reserving their LD kit for Le Mans only, just as they did last year

tyronnezx has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
love how the Toyota's Driver lineup consists of drivers from various disciplines. We have Rally, WTCC, ex F1, Formula E, Super GT, and now Sarrazin is off rallying again!

jp.motorsport.com reports Hisatake Murata interview.
https://jp.motorsport.com/wec/news/w...%81%86-889433/

Murata mentioned the transient response that affects the comfort of the driver.
Toyota digitized the drivability, and seeked with drivers point of compromise between drivability and performance.
Drivers dislike lift-off (off throttle pedal) very much. In contrast, they don't feel uncomfortable with off hybrid-boost.
However, it effects performance very much.
So while observing all the disadvantages of controlling the transient response with motor/engine and the improvement of the lap time, they finally decided the figures with agreement of drivers.

Is it me, or does the TS050 in it's current form look kinda like an Audi R15 with a roof and a pointy nose?

Even though the implementation is TMG's own, it's not surprising, as I'd think that the 2017 Audi R18 would look somewhat similar, since both the stillborn updated R18 and the updated TS050 do employ a form of the simplified channel bodywork that was largely discarded from the 2009 R15.

Thanks for the link. Lots of other information about the engine is in there too. Anything more in the Japanese media about the efficiency targets they set? Murata spoke a lot about that improved efficiency in the article.

Murata also said (in this article):
There has been no major trouble in testing.
They focused on efficiency, fine-tuned turbines and downsized MGU. They managed to optimize turbo operating points.
The battery performance and service life have improved significantly even at the cell level thanks to the efforts by their in-house specialists.
Their LDF ran long distance at Aragon for endurance and setup, and then came to the Prologue where they focused on setup.

They ran the low downforce package at Aragon before Monza? I must have read the translation wrong because I thought they only ran the high downforce car.

「アラゴンでシェイクダウンを行い、ロングランして、セットアップとかを色々を行いました。その仕上げのために今回ル・マン・スペックを用意しました」
This must read so. (Prologue is not a shakedown of LDF)

Is that a bonsai car or the real thing?

Anyone have a photo of a recent prototype next to one from 10 years ago? I know they have reduced the dimensions but with these guys standing behind the car, the reduction in dimensions becomes very obvious.

That's a pretty easy thing to do


They're basically the same size they've always been, just a little thinner. Well they're a lot shorter in length than a 956 or 917L but it's been that way for quite a while now. Closed cars always look a bit more dramatic because they can have a lower roll structure but rest assured the driver is sitting at the same height and the fin is the same size.
